    How does the Shimano Dura-Ace Track TL-SR22 Lockring/Chainwhip Tool rate?

    Looking for something to use which will last and not break the bank OR MY Knuckles.

    Saw the Shimano TL-SR-22 for about $45 and seems to fill the job for cog/lock removal.

    I have seen some $15 and $120 tools but this seemed to be a
    prudent investment, any thoughts?

    I have the Park Tool chain wip cog/lock removal tool. It works really well. The key is to have a long enough handle to get leverage to remove the cogs.

    I use this one... http://road.cc/content/review/24522-...-lockring-tool

    It is a beast... IMO the best chainwhip around. I went to this one after bending the shaft and snapping the chain on a cheaper chainwhip while trying to get sprockets off after doing standing starts. No such issues with the SR22!

    It's not cheap, but this is the last chainwhip you will ever have to buy.

    Thanks, My original post has been corrected as I typed SR20 and should have been the SR22, same as yours

    FWIW I have the SR-18 Park Tool chain whip. I've broken two of them (mine and another fellow's at the track who I gave $20 for his trouble). The chain comes off the tool at the first rivet. I drilled mine out and put in a bolt instead of a rivet and it works great now. I use the HCW-17 for my lockrings. Not sure if you're talking about the same thing.

    I use the SR-1 on my road bike. Works fine, but road bikes don't have their cassette lockrings on as tight as a track cog.

    I replaced the chain on my Park whip 5 years ago. I now use a stronger KMC chain. I used Master Links to affix it to the tool.

    I'm pretty sure the chain on the Shimano SR-22 is Izumi.
